Inspired by Hawaiian flora, the pattern stitch reminded me of the official flower of the Big Island of Hawai’i, the ohi’a lehua.

Designed for the Solid Socks Ravelry Group Mystery KAL for the months of February 2019 through March 2019. You must be a member of the group to be eligible for the prize drawings.

While a solid colorway is required for the official Solid Sock Group KAL, a semi-solid, subtle variegated or gradient colorway would also work nicely for the socks. Beading is optional (minimum of 64 size 8/0 or size 6/0 seed beads, if you decide to bead).

There will be 4 clues to be released on a weekly basis:
Clue 1: February 1
Clue 2: February 8
Clue 3: February 15
Clue 4: February 22

Pattern has both charts and written instructions.

Sample was knit with Invictus Master of My Feet (400 yds/100g) in the Quartz Colorway and size 8/0 round seed beads in a dark silver gray.

Medium size pair with 9-3/4 inch foot required about 315 yds.

♥♥♥ Special thanks to my wonderful test knitters : angie/kachelmeier, debi/corirallen, diane/hautecontre, diane/hexlein, eeva/Neuloja80, jamie/knitbyhand, pati/patipoint, miriam/helluvamimi & candy/ladyjhia

There was a problem with reading the legends on Clue 1.
